Flexible Package Oxygen Barrier Films


The market is evolving to the point where the flexible package containing the product has become the label. Since the package is the label, many label printers are now considering venturing into the world of flexible packaging. One key transition element from label printer to flexible package maker using existing presses is in the selection of print and lamination substrates. This requires an understanding of each component of the package and some knowledge of what is available.
